Bv 222 V2



Revell of Germany's 1/72 scale Bv 222 V2 is available online from Squadron

 

Description

 

Here is my Revell Blohm und Voss Bv 222 V2 in 1/72 scale.
 
The model has been built with the following additional parts:
  •  Eduard photoetched parts: engine wires and the mandatory antennas.

  •  Eduard canopy masks.

  •  Fishing lines has been used for the external wires.

  • The stand has been created by filling a wood plate with DAS.

  • The water effects has been created with a metallic sphere used to give the irregular shape of the waves. After applying the intermediate seablue (lifecolor) a drybrush with a white color has been applied too. A generous amount of transparent has been applied with a final layer of the Tamya's smoke. 

 

 

 
The weathering has been realized applying oil colors with airbrush at low pressure, some effects near the engines has been realized by removing the oil colors with a cotton bud.

Before applying the transparent a general drybrush (white color) around the perimeter has been applied too.

 
The photos has been enhanced with Photoshop to remove the background.
